The wealth, property and contentment of the rural population of Denmark are known to all the world. Students in Denmark and elsewhere familiar with the recent history of the country assert that these are due directly, and almost wholly, to the character and universality of Danish rural education. Probably no other country has succeeded so well in adapting the work of its rural schools to the needs of its rural population. The methods by which this has been done and the results obtained contain valuable lessons for the people of the United States, where the improvement and redirection of the rural schools constitute just now the most important problem of statesmanship. The accompanying manuscript outlines the educational system of rural Denmark. A bibliography is provided. (Contains 9 plates and 11 footnotes.) [Best copy available has been provided.]
